Re-Entry: An Analysis of the Needs and Problems of the Returning College Student.
Lourie, Joan; Mayo, Cynthia
The major objective of this study was to determine the needs and problems experienced by re-entered college students (those 25 years and older). Although limited to one institution, the sample was substantial in size. A questionnaire survey, mailed to all 2,958 re-entered students, was designed to determine whether or not any patterns existed in students' expressed needs and problems based on differences in sex, age, and length of interruption in schooling. Major findings were that women expressed more difficulties and concerns, more desire for counseling services, and more desire for re-entry services than did men. Length of interruption was a factor; the longer a student was away from schooling, the more he/she expressed difficulties and concerns. Age did not influence desire for counseling. Results are reported in detail, and a sample questionnaire is included. (Author/LEB)
